Lecture – Asteroid Day 2017 – Impacting Asteroids in Texas by David Kring

In his annual update on Earth impact events, Dr. David Kring of the Lunar Planetary Institute will describe the magnitude of the persisting threats of asteroids today, and the steps we might take to mitigate these types of calamitous events in the future. This year Dr. Kring adds a Texas twist, reviewing impacting asteroids that have struck the Lone Star State.

To bring awareness to the threat of Earth impacts and the science that studies them, Asteroid Day is celebrated each year on June 30, the anniversary of the 2013 impact near the Russian town of Chelyabinsk and the 1908 impact that flattened a forest near the Tunguska River in–and a modern-day example of the immense dinosaur-killing Chicxulub impact event in the Yucatán.

This event is sponsored by Lunar and Planetary Institute.

Authored By Chris Wells

Adventure is my middle name. Well… actually it’s French. Literally, it’s Christopher French Wells. But the spirit of adventure lives in me, and has always inspired me to go out and seek new experiences. I’ve traveled to Europe, Mexico and South America, as well as few places in the U.S. I’ve seen different places with different cultures, learned some things about humanity and about myself in particular. My goal is to lend my unique perspective, carved out of my own triumphs and tragedies, fears and fancies encountered during my years of college and international travel, to the other great voices of this blog. Hopefully to the enjoyment of our readers…
